Story

Imagine a school that is set in the heart of a farm. Imagine children with big eyes and bigger dreams walking into the school with a bag full of aspirations. Imagine teachers passionate about empowering their rural communities.

 Imagine agriculture, as not just a chapter in the geography textbook, but unfolding around them as a way of life. Imagine children learning through math walls and science camps, kabbadi and meditation, visual art and paper craft. Imagine a place, where expression is treasured, not grammar; understanding is valued, not marks; good actions are worshiped, not theories. Imagine all this, or visit us for more.

  • What is our mission?
We envision our children to grow into self-aware, responsible and creative individuals, who will, in turn, transform their own communities and contribute to rural development. Our farmland is an open lab where students individually and collaboratively experiment and practice their skills. 
This way, agriculture becomes a space to learn science and geography as well as patience and gratitude. What cannot be taught on the farm, is explored in the playing field. Sport is utilized as a site for physical and intellectual development. Arts are explored as a medium for emotional expression and self-knowledge. With a student-teacher ratio of 20:1, individuality is emphasized and encouraged.

Recently, we started a residential batch of students, in order to maximize their learning in a holistic way. Their day starts with yoga, meditation, sports, and agriculture and ends with multilingual conversations and skits. We find extreme joy when we see them flourish and bloom beautifully.

Who are we?

We are a small family of dedicated and evolving educators supported by a larger family of creative practitioners and advisors. Our sense of purpose to provide holistic education is sourced from the continuous reflection on our own journeys of learning and unlearning. We find ourselves growing, just like our children, plants, and crops. All of us organically.

This is our story of rural education towards a meaningful life. And it will not be complete without you. You, the kind supporter, are the reason why we have come this far. And your support will take our children further in their journeys.

  • It is your support that will ensure that our fees stay subsidized by 70% of the actual cost of quality education per child per annum.
  • It is your support that will empower us to keep wavering the tuition fees for girls. This is to ensure a stable girl-boy ratio in the school.
  • It is your support that allows us to maintain dignified salaries for the teachers, who are themselves a product of regressive rural education and yet are eager to learn from the best educators of the country.
  • It is your support that offers a sigh of relief to farmers and landless laborers who painstakingly provide us with food, but cannot afford quality education for their children.
  • It is your support that encourages us to arrange for Montessori learning aids, exposure visits and transportation to and from 18 villages.

Your support can do all this and much more.
Come, be a part of our story.
